Roselawn fires ruled arson

ROSELAWN, OH (FOX19) - Firefighters are looking into whether several fires in the same neighborhood are connected.

The first fire broke out around 2:15 a.m. Tuesday morning in the 7000 block of New Bedford in Roselawn. Firefighters arrived to find a vacant apartment building on fire.

Another fire was reported minutes in another vacant home just around the corner from the first one, in the 1600 block of Crest Hill Ave. A second alarm was called in for that fire.

Two more fires were found in a dumpster behind the second fire, and down the street, another fire was reported in a trash can.

One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion, but no one else was hurt.

Firefighters say the fires were intentionally set.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
